We are expecting, or at least hopeful for, a somewhat normal season. Regionals will be August 5-7 at Spani Pool in Coquitlam, and Provincials (for those who qualify) will be August 19-21 in Kamloops.
Summer season will start May 1, 2022 and runs for all swimmers until the end of Regionals on August 7th. To qualify for Provincials, swimmers must compete at Regionals and must place in the top three for an individual race or top two places for a relay. Swimmers who qualify for Provincials will train for two more weeks and will finish their season on August 21.
The amount of practices per week depends on the athlete’s age and ability. Younger kids may swim 3-4 days per week, while the senior group may swim 5-7 days per week. Swim meets start in June and there are swim meets almost every weekend in June and July. Swim meets are free to attend and while they are optional, they are highly encouraged.
Practices times are not yet booked, but are usually morning and/or evenings, so as to not interfere with school and the work day. Evening practices usually occur sometime between 5-9 pm.
To join the club: your child must be able to swim 25 meters continuously, without help. New swimmers will be temporarily be placed into a group based on age and past swimming levels. Assessments will occur during the first week of May and swimmers may be moved at that time to a group that is more suitable to their level.
Currently we are not registering for the mini-Mantas program, but instead will have a waitlist only. This is due to current City of Burnaby regulations that does not allow learn to swim programs. If the City allows us a mini-Mantas program, there will be very limited spots, and swimmers will be chosen based on the following guidelines:
